It seems the title “Omubanda wa kabaka” didn’t come from nothing and singer Bobi Wine can stamp his authority over the title since it has been endorsed by His majesty the Kabaka of Buganda.
The artist received a condolence message through the letter from the King Ronald Muwenda Mutebi for the loss of their beloved father.
“There is no way we couldn’t be strong if you are with us in this trying moment his majesty.” Bobi wrote after receiving the letter that read:-
We thank God for the life of Ssentamu and the gifts of his kids who are prominent musicians including Bobi Wine-“Omubanda wa Kabaka” (Kings Gangster), Eddie Yawe and others.
He will be remembered as one who educated his children and one who didn’t obstruct their talents.
Our condolences go to the wives, relatives and friends and we pray his soul rest in eternal peace.”
The artist has been called the name but has faced a lot of criticism from all corners of Buganda and the general public saying the Kingdom of Buganda can’t be affiliated with “Gangstar” celebrities.
